We are very excited to announce updates to the Awair Omni Dashboard! The latest improvements are intended to simplify operations, provide greater insight into your Omni devices, and give you more control over how data is organized and shared within your organization. Below, we’ve detailed what to expect from the latest round of updates.
We are introducing a new hierarchy within the Dashboard which will help you manage, search, and locate your Omnis more efficiently.
Existing “Groups” in your Dashboard will be converted into “Locations.” Within each Location, you can now organize your devices by “Floor” (e.g. Lobby, Floor 1, Floor 2) to reflect how the devices are arranged within the building. This new organizational structure creates a direct association between Locations and Floors, allowing you to manage multiple Floors within a single Location.
In addition to this change, we also created a new filtering feature which allows you to find and manage your devices more effectively. The new Location and Floor concept can be used to filter devices within a search. In addition to using these new criteria, you can also filter results by "Status" (Connected or Disconnected) to gain insight into your devices’ operational status. To streamline this process, you can apply multiple filters to a single search.
In order to improve the utility and security of your Dashboard, we have expanded the level of access and permissions you can grant to a specific user. Current “Owners” and “Admins” will now become “Organization Managers.”
Organization Managers have the same scope of permissions as current Owners. They can create new Locations and invite new "Location Managers" and "Location Members." They also have the ability to edit device settings, control user permissions, and remove users from an Organization.
Within this new role hierarchy, Location Managers are a step below Organizational Managers. Location Managers have the same permissions, but these permissions are limited to their specific Location. They can upload, manage, and view devices within their designated Location. They can also add new Location Members and Location Managers for their Location.
Existing Dashboard Members will become Location Members. Location Members have read-only access for the specific Location(s) to which they are assigned.
Multiple levels of access can be assigned to a single user. For example, User A can be a Location Manager and/or Location Member in multiple locations.
The new “Device Management” section of your Dashboard provides more information about your Omnis.
In addition to these new features, we’ve added bulk editing capabilities. Simply select multiple devices to edit the LED display setting, Location, and Floor of the entire group or perform a bulk reboot or reset on devices on your WiFi network.
If you currently have multiple Organizations, we encourage you to consolidate them into one Organization with multiple Locations. This will create a more scalable organizational structure and will allow you to manage all your devices and users with greater ease, clarity, and efficiency.
We’re more than happy to help you consolidate your existing Organizations and answer any questions you may have. For additional support, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Building health safety has always been important, but it has never received as much public attention as it is getting now. A big part of that attention is focused on indoor air quality (IAQ). People are becoming increasingly aware that ventilation, air filtering, and IAQ are leading factors in measuring the safety of a space, especially for re-entry. In addition, managing building air quality:
We're excited to announce that Glow has started shipping. Awair Glow plugs directly into the wall, tracks your air, and can power on your devices to keep your air fresh and healthy. Glow also has an elegant nightlight and is the perfect addition to any room.
The smells we associate with newness and cleanliness — a fresh coat of paint, a new carpet, lemon-scented disinfectant — are not as harmless as they may seem. These odors are caused by the release of gases called volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in many common building materials and household products.
